[UPDATE] I-49 Back Open After Morning Wreck Involving McDonald’s Truck
[UPDATE 2] No injuries reported from this morning’s 18-wheeler wreck involving a McDonald’s truck. State Police Trooper Matt Harris says the refigerated truck was carrying food products, when the driver lost control and left the roadway around mile marker 162 in DeSoto Parish and ended up in a ditch. He says it took less time than expected to bring in another truck to offload the goods from the wrecked truck and load them onto another. The roadway was shut down for a couple of hours until that was finished. Harris says no perishable goods were harmed in the process.
